Hoffman is a tremendous example of what can be accomplished when one determines to work hard, eat healthy, and exercise. This is an amazing feat, and Hoffman should be commended for setting this example. At an age when most are content to get fatter and fatter by sitting on the couch watching television while consuming beer and fast food, Hoffman has refused to give in to the modern trend of gluttony and sloth.

Dave's recent jump is so inspiring. It captures our imaginations and makes us wonder what we're capable of. As one of his family members, we are so very proud and excited for him.

Writes Dick: If you believe those supplement commercials on TV, you can lose 8 to 12 percent of muscle a year in your 40s and 50s.

If that is true, at what age would someone become invisible? Perhaps retiring at 66 and disappearing would go hand in hand.
